"The Global Village"
As Marshall McLuhan predicted almost 60 years ago, we are already living in unprecedented ages of worldwide informational interconnection. Nowadays, we can hardly imagine going out without our smartphone, using old type mobile phones, let alone a home without a Wi-Fi network. Matter of fact, it became the most important service that people are asking for when choosing a hotel, hostel, or a location to sleep. As though without it, we can't really enjoy our vacation. More and more people are spending most of their time online while not using the internet is seen as some kind of abstinence. All that is more than understandable considering the unarguable advantages and comforts that the internet endowed to us. We can literally communicate with the speed of light and of course, there are innumerable other benefits. But we are seldom questioning the possible repercussions upon our psyche and the natural functioning of our brain, the faculty of memory, or sleep. Is it really the same to have a chat through some social media as to engage in a real conversation? Do we still hold the border between our Instagram or Facebook profile and our persona? The line separating real and virtual is becoming thin and yet more thinner. What consequences are waiting for us as a kind, which is surely and inevitably transforming into a digital species? For now, we can only guess.
